the company's imports from canada. the pipeline is a primary supplier of crude oil from western united states into the canada. they expect "significant impact" on oil producers and refiners. it rose 3% to $76.45 a barrel in new york trading. >> tom: politics can make investors nervous, but not tonight's "market monitor." robert drach is the publisher of the "drach weekly research report." and he's is back with here on "nightly business report." >> good to see you, tom. >> tom: ahead of the november elections, you say you're absolutely bullish about stocks. why is that? >> if there was any time you didn't have to worry about the market than elections, this is it. historically, if the legislative and executive branches offset, which looks like is going to happen. >> tom: different parties. >> yeah. they offset, it is invariably strong for stocks. one group with a lot of the political cronyism, and special if you have another things. >> tom: like what? >> the most accommodated fed in history, and the cash reserves are the largest in history. >> tom: in terms of the corporate cash -- >> right. yo
of weather. igor hit parts of newfoundland, canada yesterday and scooting off to the northern atlantic. and this is from a tropical storm in the pacific. some of that will get into the desert southwest for flooding there. rain across south texas and severe weather threat across the northern tier as this front tries to cool things off. but ahead of it, it's going to be toasty. 85 in new york, 91 in d.c., there were a slew of highs yesterday, and even though tonight fall arrives, the heat will continue. >>> well, listen to this, a group of students from virginia tech, they won a competition in europe. it's called a solar decathlon. they were able to prove that they could build a solar-powered house and it be sort of comfortab comfortable. check it out in this week's "edge of discovery." >> reporter: welcome to the home of the future. when you wake up, the cold concrete floor warms up. your favorite music starts playing, and coffee begins to brew. and as you drive away, the house locks itself. >> the house is the solar house that gets all the energy from the sun. >> reporter: a group of v
look at some of the other countries and the policies that they have, excuse me. you can look at canada, united kingdom, australia, for example. they set up a scoring point system that reward people for being able to contribute to the host country. now, i have long said that the immigration policy in the united states of america should be designed to enhance the economic, social and cultural well-being of the united states. that should be actually the policy of any sovereign nation in the world, should establish an immigration policy for the purposes of enhancing the economic, social and cultural well-being that have particular sovereign state. in this case, it's the united states of america. we should also understand that one of the essential pillars of american exceptionalism is the rule of law. if we have contempt for the rule of law, if we have some of the highest profile people in america openly speak about hiring illegals to take care of their home and at the same time advocate for the dream act which is amnesty for a specific class of people, we regard -- reward for illegal behav
countries, including great btain, australia, canada, the netherlands, and israel, allow open service by lesbian and gay troops. we have no greater allies than great britain, australia, canada, and israel, and none of these countries, not one, reports morale or recruitment problems. at least nine of these countries have deployedheir forces alongside american troops in operation iraqi freedom, and at least 12 of these nations are allowing open service and are currently fighting alongside u.s. troops in afghanistan. there's a cost involved in our current policy. according to a 2005 g.a.o. report, american taxpayers spend more than $30 milon each year to train replacement for gay troops discharged under the n't ask, d't policy. the total costs reported since the statute was implemented, according to g.a.o., has been nearly $200 million and that doesn't count the administrative and legal costs associatedith investigations and hearings. the militar schooling of gay troops, such as pilot training and linguist training. we are losing highly-skilled troops to this policy. cording to the g.a.o
running for office. it is unheard of in great britain or canada for any party to ever think about changing the law to keep its competition off the bell. and the britain anyone can get on about -- to keep them off the ballot in this country. in canada but it only takes 100 signatures. it does not occur to people in most countries that is legitimate for two parties to get together and keep competition off the ballot. host: for those who tried to keep the parties off the ballots, what is the main reasoning? guest: it depends on whether they are talking honestly or not. if you want an example of an honest comment, i was at a georgia state legislative hearing once and a legislator on the elections committee said, i don't want no damn libertarian running against me. i appreciated that. when the law came before judges, the judges will not say something like that. they constantly tell us we are in danger of overcrowded ballots that will cause the utter confusion. the truth is, we suffer from under-crowded ballots. i have been tracking state legislative candidacies for 20 years. every election year
baggage on the death penalty issue. i grew up in canada where the last time someone was executed for murder was 1962. dpnlt really deters crime. well, all of those sentiments from the canadian public coalesced into the complete elimination of capital punishment in 1976. but there are other reasons to eliminate capital punishment in the united states. the death row in the united states, very costly. they don't believe the death penalty deters murder and they're rated as one of the most inefficient uses of taxpayer money to fight crime. a report that was put out by the richard deeters group says maintaining people on death row and supporting propositions that likely will never be carried out is becoming increasingly expensive and harder to justify. looking back at theresa lewis's case she was convict and sentenced in 2002 for her crime and the significant cause of legal appeals. many appeals take much longer. his report says the money spent to preserve the system estimated to be $10 million per year makes the society safer. that's more food for thought. that's it for me. time now f
canada and billionaire bill gates tell cnn they participated in the film because of their concerns. >> we have a school day that's too short, a school year that's too short and we have lots of teach here's should not be teaching. >> reporter: and to offer solutions for the future. >> today the internet gives you that opportunity to watch the best lectures in the world. they're out there for free. if you take advantage of those resources, you can be broader and deeper than any of the kids were in my generation. >> among 30 developed countries, we rank 25th in math and 21st in science, and almost every category we have fallen behind. >> when i watch these things, you have to have some skepticism. >> reporter: jay fernandez from the hollywood reporter says "super man" has more to do with aspiring change than assigning blame. >> the studio and filmmakers hope this doesn't just spark debate but sparks reform. >> reporter: fernandez says his greatest concern is that moviegoers guilt might actually keep them from buying a ticket. >> it's almost like i know this is out there, but do i really want
states, but not exclusive of other population. we imagined it would look a bit like canada and the united states, france and germany, where people would be able to cross the border. the israelis could be able to shop in palestinian areas, palestinians coming over to the israeli side -- and it has been repeated recently -- palestinians are not opposed to jews living in a palestinian state. we recognize the jewish people have religious and historic ties that will be the palestinian state. there is no objection to the jews living in the palestinian state. are they going to live in there as a palestinian citizen, as israeli citizens, under what framework? this vision of two states with multi-ethnic population is moving back and forth, this has taken a beating since i was in negotiations. over the course of all the violence that has taken recently, specifically in israel, over two exclusive populations. i think there needs to be a conclusion in a two state solution that allows both jews and palestinians to have access to both countries. the more interaction there will be, the more peace will b
made as the canada. 4.5 million small businesses and individuals will be eligible to immediately write off more expenses. that may benefit ruth, who is opening another restaurant in alexandria, virginia. 2 million self-employed americans will be able to receive a new deduction for health insurance. we will be increasing the tax break for anyone looking to open up a business. that is a $10,000 deduction. it can help with discouraging startup costs. future prosperity depends on whether regreting an environment in which folks can take new ideas for products to market and generate new business. that is not just a challenge of government. it is a challenge that requires businesses, leaders, universities, and others across this country. the second thing this bill does is we are going to make more loans available to small business. right now, there is the waiting list for sba loans. these are people who are ready to hire or expand, who have been approved by their banks, who are waiting for this legislation to pass. when i sign this bill, their weight will be over. will be over.it [applause] v
't know about immigration statistics. if she moved from san antonio to canada, to get a healthcare job. that's good. that's all good moving from florida to get more sun. healthcare interacts with a lot of different sectors. they have spent an enormous amount of money in healthcare and the military. to shuffle around where we spend money on military bases, gave $2.2 billion to build the finest military medical center in the world. >> raleigh, north carolina, good morning. caller: good morning. host: you're on, ma'am. caller: i have bit of an issue with the comment made. i am a healthcare worker. i am an rn. when you mention the expansion of healthcare and the need for jobs. i have been in a heavy medical area in north carolina and a large proportion in this area are in one of tech jobs or nursing or medical field. my comment was, when you mentioned minimal training, you mentioned nurses as part of that. i think that's not necessarily true. there are a lot of good physicians with minimal training, as an rn. i took a little bit of objection to that because it made it sound like the people
companies using these, especially in canada. i was wondering, on the state legislative side, is there anything we can do as an industry to help them work in the state-to-state level with one voice versus going individually state to state to try to get regulations that are written? all the states and to be moving toward this, but that a written more in compliance with what the national regulations that are being proposed and actually being brought out? is there any way that we can help to work with the states on that? thank you. >> well, i am not as familiar with the exact regulations you're talking about so far as the technology and the school buses. but so far as, you know, working with state legislators, again, i give you the invitation to contact me and talk directly with me. ncsl, on a whole, does not develop model legislation for states to adopt because, you know, the one size does not fit all, and we want to make sure states have flexibility in the way they approach legislation in their state. but i would at least welcome a conversation with you if there's an opportuni
of their american parent for their entire childhood. canada, the united kingdom, have all asked japan on returning their abducted children. children japan's inaction on the issue is a thorn in the side of their relations with the entire international community. japan's current inaction violates their duties under the international covet on civil and political rights, article 23, to completely and unjustly ignore the equal rights of one parent. h.res. 1326 calls on japan to immediately and urgently establish a process for the resolution of abduction an wrongful retention of american children. japan must find the will to establish today a process that will justify and equitablely end the cruel separation currently endured by parent and children alike. h.res. 1326 also calls on japan to join the hague convention on the civil aspects of international child abduction. this convention sets out the international norms for resolution of abduction and wrongful retention cases and will create a framework to quickly resolve future cases and act as a deterrent to parents who now feel that they can abduct thei
